No. It's not uncommon to have a change in cycle after stopping bcp. Did you finish the whole pack before stopping them??? Or did you stop mid pack?

Sometimes you just have to give your body a couple of months to adjust. I stopped mine in August after being on them 2 years. I got my period 30 days later and lasted (lighter then while on bc) for 2 days. It seems my body bounced back ok. I should expect a period 9/27-28 give a take a couple of days.
